Have you noticed anything different this year? Where is everyone? What is happening? It would appear our patch of Heaven is dying a slow death. Can this be stopped? Can Quartzsite be saved? If you consider Quartzsite's Recycle... adds up! it all We pay 80% of Spot & Up Gold Sand Concentrates Placer Gold 24 Mesh Size up to Nuggets past, you'll know it'll be difficult, take considerable effort and a willingness for people to work together. Regardless the cause, there have to be changes made. Good employees can't be effective when the head of the organization or its management team is/are a) incompetent or lawbreakers, and b) is not a team with its workers. Added to that, there must be a reasonable action plan describing where the town wants to go in the future. What's "reasonable"? Becoming another Palm Desert is not "reasonable." The Town needs to look to its past and reinstate what made it unique and appealing. One problem I see to this whole endeavor is that there doesn't appear to Recycle your empty inket cartridges and used cell phones!

That's a big problem. Who lives here all year? Town Hall employees and a few businesses that remain open are here, along with a small number of citizens. My suggestion would be for the Town Hall employees, as a group, distinguish the maladjusted eligible residents from the reasonable ones and find a slate of candidates and work as a team, get them elected. [Editor's note: Town employees cannot decide election issues] We need some educated, ethical, moral, forward thinking, altruistic people with reason taking the helm. We need to shed the dead weight and get rid of those who are sucking the life out of our paradise. If we don't in a few years, Quartzsite will be just another ghost town. Joe Pearly (formerly of Wisconsin, now professional snowbird) Nice parade The parade was nice. Afterward we went to the hall for cookies & hot chocolate. A man in a Santa Suit with an ugly green mask on startled me. Now with another shooting in Oregon, in a mall; how can we stop people from wearing a mask at Christmas in a crowd? This is not what Christmas is about & what message does it send out to children? How can we address this? Pat Meissner, Quartzsite Just Rambling... I often started phone calls saying," This is London calling." I gave the practice up when a secretary panicked and called for her boss. One time a man yelled for his wife to pick up the other phone. It was fun then; global calls are just too common these days. Provided by Elmer London & Desert Messenger
